National Aviation Day (August 19) is a United States national observation day that celebrates the development of aviation.

The holiday was established in 1939 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who issued a presidential proclamation which designated the anniversary of Orville Wright’s birthday to be National Aviation Day (Mr. Wright, born in 1871, was still alive when the proclamation was first issued and would live another nine years).

Even though most of us aren’t pilots, you’ve most likely made a paper airplane or two. Check out the video below to see one of the best paper airplane makers in the world.
